It’s Wednesday night, the third Wednesday in February.

And that means it’s time for gaming with my Wednesday night gaming group.

I’m still suffering from the back/neck/head/shoulder complaints and serious pain, and still have remnants of the cough that I’ve had for a while, but I spoke to the Wednesday night players, and we’re on for this evening.

With character creation pretty much wrapped up, I’m hoping to get into the first actual session of play in the The Dark Eye RPG campaign tonight, but we’ll see how things go with sample combats and the like.

Looking forward to the game tonight.

Have a good evening, folks.

A Death in the (Gaming) Family February 15, 2018

It has been a very difficult day for me today, as well as for the Friday night gaming group.

When I woke up this morning, I learned from Stephanie, DavidM’s wife, that DavidM had died at 3:45 am this morning of congestive heart failure as a complication/consequence of his having a very severe case of the flu that’s going around. David had been ill for over two weeks now, and had progressively got worse to the point where he’d been admitted to the hospital a week ago today. I’m saddened by his loss, and can’t even begin to imagine or feel how his wife and family are right now.

I’ve been sort of dysfunctional for most of the day, in a state of shock for the most part (I guess), and haven’t really accomplished anything at all today other than a bit of banking and grocery shopping I needed to get done.

I’d been gaming with DavidM for several years now, and had come to really like him. His personality was sparkling, he loved his wife and two children, ages 14 and 19, fiercely, and enjoyed what he did for a living. His loss leaves a terrible void in the lives of both his family and his friends, and I still can’t believe he’s gone.

A tragedy. A horrible day for all concerned.

Sunday Afternoon Gaming Cancelled February 11, 2018

It’s Sunday afternoon, almost.

While it was snowing with some freezing accumulation last night, it’s somewhat gloomy and cloudy outside. However, there’s a forecast for freezing rain and snow starting mid-afternoon.

Anyway, the upshot of this is that the Sunday afternoon gaming session has been cancelled for today due to the weather. Tammy and I spoke early this morning, and decided to call the game off, so I spoke to SteveR and he pretty much felt the same way. This means the next session of the The Dark Eye RPG campaign will have to wait, but it won’t be next weekend as Tammy is on-call for her work for the next two weeks.

I can’t say that I’m sorry we won’t be gaming today, as truth of the matter is I’m still sick with whatever this *censored!* bug is that I’ve caught. That said, it will allow me to keep up with the final hours of the John Carter of Mars – The Roleplaying Game Kickstarter. The Kickstarter closes at 3 pm EST, but even after it closes you’ll be able to take a late pledge to the game.

Gotta go, need to make some lunch!

Friday Evening Game Session Cancelled February 9, 2018

Another Friday night.

And another Friday night where gaming has been cancelled.

More than half of my Friday night gaming group (including myself) are down and out with a case of flu, and one of my players is so bad that he’s in the hospital. I finished the antibiotic yesterday, and am not sure whether I’m partially over the bug, as I’m hacking away (cough) and still have the mental fuzzies.

I was quite looking forward to running the Friday night session of the on-going The Dark Eye campaign tonight, but such is not to be the case. Just gotta be optimistic, and look forward to next Friday night.

It’s Sunday, nearly afternoon.

It’s been snowing outside since last night, and is showing no signs of stopping. (10-15 cms, my butt!)

Anyway, the upshot of this is that the Sunday afternoon gaming session has been cancelled for today due to the weather. This means the next session of the The Dark Eye RPG campaign will have to wait, hopefully until next weekend.

I can’t say that I’m sorry we won’t be gaming today, as truth of the matter is I’m still sick with whatever this *censored!* bug is that I’ve caught. I’m just very, very tired. So this means another day of relative rest, little talking, and just catching up on some tv and pvr stuff.

But I am sorry that I’m not gaming today.

It’s Friday night.

Normally, I’d be getting ready for gaming with the Friday players this evening, but gaming has been cancelled for tonight.

A couple of my players called to say that they were unable to make it out this evening due to feeling under the weather. I’m all right with this, knowing how they feel. While the Aunty (biotic) is starting to take effect, I think, I’m miserable today, am hacking a lot, have the mental fuzzies, and there’s a chance I’m running a fever.

I was quite looking forward to running the Friday night session of the on-going The Dark Eye campaign tonight, but am just not physically up to it. Just gotta be optimistic, and look forward to next Friday night.

‘Nuff said.

The Start of February February 1, 2018

It’s Thursday morning. The first of February. A new month.

I’m just hoping that this month is better than last month, especially health-wise. The early part of January was pretty decent, but the rest of the month wasn’t all that great for multiple reasons.

I don’t have much to say today as I’m feeling pretty ill, to be honest. Am planning to go out later as I’ve got a footcare appointment. Probably not the smartest idea I’ve had, but I need to go for that appointment.

It’s almost Sunday afternoon.

And that means it’s time for Sunday afternoon gaming.

Truth be told, I’m feeling somewhat under the weather. Got a bad headache, some chills, sinus congestion, lots of phlegm, and a moderate cough. (And that’s aside from the cervical spine issues on the left side of my body.) However, I spoke to both Tammy and , and both agreed they were willing to play this afternoon and take their chances on my health not being contagious.

We’ll be playing some The Dark Eye RPG this afternoon, as I actually manage to start the game campaign, so I’m quite looking forward to this. That said, gonna have to take decent notes on stuff today, as I’m sure I won’t remember much of the game session come the beginning of the week given the state of my head.

Like I said, looking forward to gaming. In the meantime, I need to figure out something light to eat for lunch.

Have a good afternoon, folks.

*cough, cough*

It’s Friday night, and so another game session with the Friday players.

I wasn’t sure that I’d be able to run the game tonight, given the fact that my house was left a shambles when the new fridge, dryer and washer were installed and all yesterday late in the day. Cleaning up the place and moving all the furniture and knick-knacks back wasn’t easy, and I’m in serious pain now in the neck/shoulder/arm/hand region, and I think I’ve put too much stress on the other arm. It’s hurting too.

Be that as it may, I’m getting ready for this evening’s game session with the Friday night players, and am really looking forward to it. I’m looking forward to this evening’s session of The Dark Eye RPG.

Oops, there’s the doorbell. Gotta go.

Have a good night, folks.

Yesterday’s Physio Appointment January 19, 2018

Had another physiotherapy appointment yesterday afternoon. Only my third appointment since coming back from GenCon.

Woke up yesterday morning, and didn’t feel all that great. Lots of pain, and some dizziness. Managed to eat some scrambled eggs with veggies and cheese for breakfast, then showered, and then took care of a couple of laundry issues. Headed out for the physio clinic, “Quality Care Physiotherapy, and got there in time for my appointment, though I had problems parking the car.

The physio appointment went relatively well, though not without a lot of pain involved, and when I was finished I made two appointments for next week. I went downstairs to the small little restaurant in the building, ETC, and had a bowl of broccoli and cauliflower soup with a grilled cheese sandwich and some side greens for lunch. Yummy! 🙂

I dropped off at mom’s place and picked her up, and then took her to the local Basics store. After shopping with her, my who left side of the body was hurting again. All the physio care wasted. I took the groceries I’d picked up and went home after dropping her off at her place, and took another painkiller.

Spent a quiet evening watching the Ottawa Senators continue their losing ways with a 4-1 loss to the St. Louis Blues, and then read for about half an hour. Took care of the nightly insulin shot and then washed up and went to bed. And didn’t sleep much…again.

*sigh*
